SOURCE: 2008 Ford Escape Horn Fuse keeps blowing after

I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse and the car body. This would indicate a short in the wire running from the fuse box to the horn. You can also look around the alternator mounting area to see if any wires are being pinched. Hope this helps. Good luck!

SOURCE: 2002 ford escape tie rod squeaks

My outer tie rod did the same thing when just out of warranty. I could tell it was "bad" by putting my hand on the tie rod while someone else turned the steering a little and I could easily feel the vibration.
Check the other side to feel the difference. Tie rods don't cost that much, if you can replace it yourself, and take a chance on foregoing the wheel alignment. Maybe a $150? job at the shop.
In my case, a tie rod was not readily available. I verified that it was a good joint; no shake or rattle. Then I squirted a little WD40 inside the boot, and put it back together. 70,000 miles later, the new tie rod is still on my shelf waiting for the squeak to return.

SOURCE: Power steering went out on a 2008 ford escape. How

A few things to check first.
Open your hood and locate the belt that should be connected to pulleys. If missing or damaged you will need to replace the belt. Most important this belt also drives many other components of the car.

The next thing to check is the power steering reservoir. Located as shown in the picture. If there is now fluid in this reservoir than you will need to fill it with power steering fluid. (you can buy this at walmart or any auto parts store)


There is a possibility that if all these things check out ok that the power steering pump has gone bad. Also if you replace the power steering fluid and it leaks runs out again you have a leak somewhere and would need to have a mechanic shop to help locate it.

How do i pull the steering wheel on 2008 ford escape?

Remove the airbag/horn button. Unscrew that big nut in there. Attach a steering wheel puller to the wheel, mark the wheel's position, and crank the wheel off the stem. DO NOT disturb the steering until the wheel is back on, and be careful to align the wheel the same way going on as it was in when it came off.

It's really pretty easy to remove, but it DOES take that puller. The pullers are cheap.

I can not get the key to turn in the ignition to start the Ford Escape Hybrid

The steering wheel lock may be putting pressure on the lock mechanism. Try turning the steering wheel a little either way as you turn the ignition key.
